What a waste of life, playing poker with a bunch of losers. Why would anybody want to surround themselves with that sector of society? Poker is all about getting the right cards, luck, nothing else. Pro Poker that is, anybody can bluff a scared RAT.

Isn't thats what life's all about??? Gambles, taking chances, winning some, losing some. It's all about doing what really makes you happy without stepping on someone eleses toes. Besides, with a pending law career, she's already got a ace in the hole!

I think Melissa is supporting her. She is just commenting on what jealous women (and men) might say.

Video calls her an Ivy Leaguer.

When did Duke or the University of Miami join the Ivy League?
No Ivy-Leaguer Either

<quoted text>SOFLA LOVER is just jealous because the young poker beauty made more money in one game than he made in the past ten years. Besides, who cares how or with who the money is made with? What about the Real Estate Agents and Investors that drove the housing market up for their own personal gain and benefit; now, it's all falling and leveling off. They have ruined a few lives here in Florida (not mine), but what would you call someone going into the Realty or Investor field.....scumbags? Yeah, you would, because you feel you could not make the money and or beat the challenges. Maybe this young woman is in it for other resons too! Let's not be jealous, let's support her.....GO GIRL!
Thank you my dear - you are so correct - once again - GO GIRL!!!
